On October 27 
St. Francis High School will MIX IT UP at LUNCH
What is Mix It UP at Lunch?
On October 27, we will encourage our students to join hundreds of thousands of students around the country and stir things up in the school cafeteria. This event encourages students to identify, challenge & cross the social boundaries that divide schools & communities.

As at many schools, the cafeteria at lunchtime is a social map of our whole school. A map criss-crossed with boundaries. These boundaries can create divisions and misunderstanding in schools and can lead to bullying, harassment and violence. But by working to cross the barriers students can help create an environment that is characterized by less conflict and instead by more tolerance.

Please encourage your children to see what happens if they mix it up at lunch and swap seats in the cafeteria, step out of their comfort zone and sit somewhere new, with someone new.
